Cj on coil springs? I dont understand it! PLEASE HELP!!!

I am a TJ owner and i have only wheel and wranched on tj's but now im making a new addition to the jeep family, a 76 cj7. I have seen pictures of cj7's on coil spring's? How do you do that conversion? what all does it take to do it? do they make a kit? is it very costly? is it worth it? I dont know much about cj's so im starting to try and learn as much as i can about then before i start to tear apart and upgrade. The cj7 has a 304 AMC v8, d30 front ( i hope to pick up a d44 from a buddy ), an amc rear which i just ordered a 1 peice axle for, and i plan on stalling 4.88 gear's. Right now it has a 6 inch suspension lift with 35inch TSL's. Any and all info about upgrading the ol cj would be great!

Well bro, it's just about the same as converting a YJ to coils or coilovers. Leaf springs are only going to take you so far (Don't let Hackle hear you say that because his mule flexed out pretty hard when he had leafs all around.)

You would have to fab up control arms, mounts, spring pads etc....or maybe some sort of a 1/4 elyptical setup with a ladder
bar. I don't believe I have ever seen a specific kit out there for CJ's, but you can use pieces from other kits to make it work. Some guys will do this to their CJ's when they get rid of the narrow track axles on there or when they are looking for more suspension travel.

I've recently seen a freshly done CJ comp cut with a triangulated 3 link rear and coilovers. Looked real nice.

you should take a look at Jim from JKSMFG.com. He has a long armed coiled out CJ.

Warn came up with a kit a few years ago for the CJ's and YJ's that was coil over. Since that time they sold it to Black Diamond I am not sure they still produce it. The only coil kit I know of and I am not sure they made it for a CJ is Procomp.
Most times these type of kits a fabbed up by an owner or a shop. HTH
